They unfortunately don't have support for 3XXX EVGA GPU's yet, but it's worth keeping an eye on OpenRGB as an alternative for controlling the RGB lighting. That coupled with MSI Afterburner for fan control would be a far superior alternative to having to use Precision X1.

I have been having the same issue for months with my 3080 FTW3 Ultra.  I even RMAed the first, which behaved the same way.  It's a shame EVGA has not addressed this.

Came looking to see why my new 3080ti reverts to rainbow and surprise, it affects everyone and there's no solution. :/

Does anyone have this issue with cards older than the current 3xxx GPUs? No issues of the sort here on a 2080TI FTW3 Ultra.


Yes I am having LED issues with my EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 Super FTW3 Ultra+.  I can switch to static off. Static on but everything else just picks a random color and stays there.  Breathing setting does this. Rainbow does this. I do see the rainbow pattern on boot-up.
 
I was ready to just install my own LEDs and power them with the Asus LED controller anyways.  This is getting very old.

The issue I've been experiencing with the ARGB control is it not retaining settings on reboot/shutdown.  It will revert to what the configuration was before I updated to 1.2.6.0.  Previously on 1.2.5.0 it was retaining settings.

Just today mine reverted to all rainbow at some point (I didn't see it happen).  This is using the latest (v1.2.6) version of Precision X1.  I thought it was supposed to be fixed.

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/09/18 12:17:42 (permalink)
im using a 3080 ftw3 Ultra

it keeps reverting back to "temperature" LED setting on the TOP LED.

sometimes the LIP LED on the side does not turn on.

the front led i have set to white and that works always.

why does it do this?

I'm also experiencing the RGB reset on my 3080 FTW3 ultra.
 
For me its the EVGA letters that reset from temperature to rainbow. HOWEVER, there is something else going on. For me its not just the one RGB that resets but also the fan curve. The fan curve switches to default and does not respond anymore to changes I make to it. Loading a profile with a different fan curve or different RGB settings will not change the RGB, or the curve. Can anyone else check this on their card when the RGB resets ?

Same issue on my 3080 FTW3 Ultra.
 
Temperature is by far the most useful feature and yet it randomly resets to breathing in my case.
 
Pretty frustrating when you consider the amount of money I've spent on my rig and ARGB.
 
ONly way to get it working again is to close Precision and re-open it.

Update: It took about 12 hours but eventually my GPU's "EVGA" lettering swapped itself back from temperature monitoring to the rainbow LED. What a supreme disappointment.
 
I sent a message to customer support two days ago but haven't gotten even an acknowledgement. I'm not going to put in an RMA ticket or something because from what I gather, this isn't a card-specific problem - it's EVGA's terrible, terrible software. I'll continue testing and updating if I see anything, but I think one trigger for the software could be prolonged GPU stress? I can't think of what would actually cause the Precision X1 software to "rot" over time, unless there is a memory leak or the RGB LED's they used aboard the video card itself are stubborn and hard to deal with. Whatever the case, it's a complete waste of RGB LED's and software if customization just flips back to default at random.
 
I recommend everyone submit a ticket or customer service feedback to get this problem escalated.


Any results/response? Anyone else submit a ticket?

Only problem for MSI Afterburner is that it doesn't support the 3 iCX fans for the 3080 FTW3 Ultra or XC3 Ultra. The fans turn on/off/on/off frequently and its quite annoying when you hear the clicking of the fans turning on. The minimum fan % you can set on MSI AB is like 50% to make the fans stop ramping up and down so much.

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/09/30 10:48:25 (permalink)
Here is a potential fix for this gremlin. I reinstalled drivers and flashed the stock bios. Click default and modify your RGB. Then hit save. Then load a profile and make sure your RGB is correct and then toggle back to default. Toggle between the setup tab, fan curve tab, and the main page while overwriting your default and profile colors. So far, it appears to boot into the user-chosen color since the bootup scheme is now red and does not switch randomly.

How is it going, have you get stable led config with this? Your instructions are confusing

same issue here with a 3080ti ftw3. Just made a ticket reporting this. Any one seeing this tread should create a ticket and formally report this. Hopefully someday Precision X1 gets fixed.

Tried Vlad's instructions, didn't seem to work for me though they were a little confusing so I may not have gotten it right.
 
So to confirm contrary to my previous report when I select temperature and the system GPU is under load the LED scheme resets to Rainbow Wave.
 
I am primarily interested in the Temperature setting. This issue is compounded for me as I have the EVGA running all of the RGB in my case. a cable from the EVGA ARGB Header to a powered ARGB splitter. So suddenly all RGB in the case switches to rainbow wave.
 
Will log a ticket regarding this to make it formal. (Ticket Logged)

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/10/11 11:19:39 (permalink)
nmolanog and Pudsley,
 
Apologies for the delayed response. This solution is far from perfect:
 
1. Select your preferred color in the LED tab under default. Hit Save. 
2. Click the side arrows under "VGA" and save on every page. Do the same for the setup screen.  
3. Begin saving your color to each profile. Hit Save. Then click through all the tabs spamming save. 
4. Restart and repeat. Eventually, the application will write your RGB settings to the card and it will boot as such. 
 
I don't know why this worked for me but it's probably a coincidental solution in a bout of desperation.

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/10/11 12:06:13 (permalink)
Thanks for trying to help, unfortunately it did not seem to work, tried twice.
 
After complete I shut down the computer and powered it back on, immediately it is Rainbow Wave again until the Precision X software loads. Which means when the Precision X software craps out again it will revert to Rainbow Wave.
 
One part of your instructions states to 1. Select your preferred color in the LED tab under default. Hit Save. 
 
The only default I can see is the button that resets everything to default? Is that what you were referring to?
 
Have to say I'm pretty disappointed in EVGA regarding this. If they do not resolve it soon I won't be using EVGA again (and none of the builds I complete for friends will be EVGA either).
 
That might sound petty but I spent a small fortune and a not inconsiderable amount of time building a heavily watercooled Thermaltake P90 show system with ARGB and this bug frankly just makes it all pointless, for £700+ I expect a central feature of this card to work correctly.

“The only default I can see is the button that resets everything to default? Is that what you were referring to?”

Correct. I believe hitting default, changing the color scheme, and hitting save may overwrite the default (aka boot) LED scheme. I hope this is resolved for you soon because I know the feeling. This software needs work.

Also consider going offline and disabling controlled folder access. This helped me with another brand of RGB.

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/10/22 08:14:27 (permalink)
Just wanted to share I'm seeing the issue too on a 3080 FTW3 ultra. Sometimes the config using RGB for temp will stick for 12+ hours, other times it reverts to rainbow in less than 5 mins.
It started when I moved from an EVGA stinger z170 mobo w/ 6700k to a Asrock x570 steel legend mobo w/ 5900x.
GPU RGB settings also revert when power is fully removed from the system (power cord out/PSU switch off). I also notice the little red LEDs near the power connectors will light up when the system is shut down with power still applied. Neither of these happen with the EVGA z170. 

Trying the PX1 beta from LeeM now and will report back.

EDIT: After 24-ish hours of running the PX1 beta RGB has not reverted to rainbow. Looking good so far, will keep this post updated
 
EDIT 2: 4 Days of continuous running and no RGB reset to rainbow - the PX1 beta seems to have resolved the issue for me! Thank you very much to the support and development teams at EVGA!
 
EDIT 3: I do still have the RGB reset to rainbow after power is completely removed from the system but I think that is a different issue, still happy to have it working correctly while the system is powered on now.

Just came to make my own thread about this issue. Will give the beta version a shot and see if it makes a difference.
 
Still going strong three days later, looks like the beta fixed it!

Same here and I thought it was just me.

Evga 3080 Ti FTW3 Ultra
Asus Maximus XII Extreme Motherboard
Intel I9-10900K

I have my LEDs for the EVGA Lettering on back and side set to temperature and sometimes they flip back to rainbow right away, sometimes they last maybe 15 minutes, but they will ALWAYS revert from Temp to Rainbow without fail, and shutting down PX1 and restarting is the only way to fix it.

I have no idea if its an easy fix for them, but to be fair, when you pay $1600 for a video card, that shouldn't matter.  It should be fixed.

I have not seen the issue since installing the beta from LeeM, been over 7 days powered on now and the LEDs are still displaying temperature as expected.

Re: EVGA RTX 3080 FTW -- LED settings randomly reset when using PC 2021/11/01 00:25:35 (permalink)
Thank you LeeM! That did seem to fix it! I do notice it bounce back to the rainbow colors for just a second, but then quickly reverts right back to my saved settings.

I noticed that when the problem occurred, it wasn't only the rainbow colors, but the fan settings would be off too. It didn't show different, but I could hear it. And that was the weird thing about the bug, I couldn't just load and apply my saved profile. It acted like everything was fine. When you'd try to change the LEDs to temp, it wouldn't make any changes. They said it was still what you had it set at. The only fix was to close the program and open it again each time the bug happened.

So thank you guys so much for what hopefully is the fix! So far so good!

The 1.2.7 update fixes the issue, supposedly. I am going to try it and will report back here if it doesn't fix the problem. Good luck y'all!

I'm on v1.2.8 and it still forgets some LED Settings. At First up to Version 1.2.7 it resets randomly during running the system to rainbow. Since 1.2.8 it does not reset randomly but at every PC Startup it sets my LED Count to standard 12 LEDs (My Setting: 15), 3 Areas (My Setting: 1 Area) but it keeps the Colorscheme at "Temperature" but it resets the Colors and Temps. 
 
Do EVGA employees not use there own products, that they dont notice this by themselfes?
